The Unbalmed

The Unbalmed are the main soldiers for the Forsaken King's army. They can be called back from the death to surround the ennemy, and maintain the integrity of the Temple Of Karnak.

To be fully optimised, we used a skeleton base mesh by Raphael Grassetti. Armande Lecointre made the topology and the UV's, and all the skeleton in the environment use the same textures done by Ludivine Bellot.
I have done the props and the weapons. I also had to do some animations with a Motion Capture systeme.

I had to concept it, search for a design, and then making it alive in 3D !

M1-K is the old librarian who served the place before the disappearance of humanity. Deactivated during a landslide, she comes back to life during Frank's visit. Now alone, she will tirelessly continue to maintain this relic of humanity.
